5:14 am
it is not. that's kind whatever we have going on right now now, i am not saying no one will see snow. you will very likely in some of the areas that you're seeing the purple overlay see some snow showers. how much, it will have real hard time accumulating, but will probably reduce your visibility for short time, certainly lead to potential for slick travel. those are the things you want to be watching out for, and i find a loft times i bet vittoria would agree with me, the nuisance systems create biggest problems in terms of the roadways. but more wind, more cold today, the breeze is back, but the clip letter zip on out of here as they tend to do, lever with us sun before it is all said and done. also leave us back in the deeper freeze by tomorrow. so only back to the 20's, rebounding to 30's again sunday little roller coaster ride. sunday is okay day. not quite as harsh no where near as windy back to the 30's, closer to seasonable. 24 degrees meanwhile at trenton, allentown at 19, it is cold, but not as bad as yesterday. morning flakes for many of you, windy as well, that's what you got to factor in,

5:16 am
like this, that's what can definitely happen. in this area, actually, there was an earlier accident, it was cleared not too long ago and our cameraman did a great job picking up a lot of the ice, still lingering on the roadways again this is verree right around bloomfield. but this is going to be all over the northeast and even throughout the residential areas all over philadelphia, and so on, so for the. oh, we almost got a shot of the camera guy. any who let's keep it going looking at the majors, majors are different story. salt crews did great job on some of the area majors. take a look at the schuylkill expressway really because the snow is very minimal with so much traffic it, kind of relieves a lot of the snow coverage on the roads just in general. but, our majors look great at this point. no delays in either direction on any of our majors, at least at this point and no major delays for mass transit. erika? >> vittoria, thank you. welshing check out this. this bus is all banged up after colliding with a pick-up truck in albuquerque. now we're seeing the dramatic view of the crash from inside
